The Other Sports Collective Thread

for the Non NFL and MLB stuff.

Ben Howland was fired today. With the right coach, they can be to CBK what USC under Pete Carroll was to CFB. If I was a UCLA alum, I'd be hoping for Shaka Smart. What he's done with VCU has been absolutely amazing. Imagine that system, that intensity, that skill set - with NBA caliber talent.

EDIT

As a Cuse fan, I'm hoping Jimmy B retires after this tournament (which happens when they get hammered by the Hoosiers), and they make a run at Shaka.

If you get a chance you should DVR the United State's men soccer game tonight on ESPN. They are playing in Mexico so we will be lucky to get a draw. I think the game starts around 10:15 (probably more like 10:30). The men squeaked out a crazy game against Costa Rico on Friday. It was played during blizzard like conditions.I never saw soccer played in those conditions before.

I continue to think we look like crap and will probably be lucky to make it to the World Cup. We just suck at every aspect of the game other than goalie play. Howard, our starting goalie, is out for a bit (I have no clue why and how long). Dempsey is a beast and continues to be a shining star on the team because he can finish and score goals. It will be interesting to see how well the midfielders pass the ball. They have a tendency not to lead players with the ball which stops their momentum (in the NFL it would be considered YAC yards). Vamanos USA!!!!!

Howard has some form of broken back. It isn't as bad as it seems as he will be playing for Everton again soon. I agree the team looks like they are missing some key element, but am hoping for at least a draw tonight.

For the most part, it's a lot of bad tactics. Mexico is more talented than us, but it's not by as much as most would think. We have enough talent to be a top 20 side in the world. Mexico is top 6 - 10.

But Klinsmann is a nightmare, tactically. He's been terrible.

Beasley makes a Busch League cross over the goal and out of play at 3 ½ minute mark. KEEP IT IN PLAY! I can’t stand that guy. I think he is 50 years old?

And at the 7:30 Markus Beasley makes another crap mistake. I cannot stand this guy- reminds me of Kobe Jones

4 minutes of stoppage time?? Welcome to soccer. This team is a joke and are pathetic. They might squeak out a win but they cannot pass to save their lives. I thought I was watching New England agasint Miami where NE lost a shitty game. We suck
